    This was sooo good! I altered the recipe just a little. Instead of using 9 corn tortillas I used probably 24 or 30. I also fried the corns before putting them in the crock pot. So it had way, way more layers and filled the crock pot all the way up. Also, I think it would be just fine to simplify this recipie and skip the beef broth and tomato sauce and just add a second can of enchilada sauce. For beans I used 1 Goya Pinto and 1 Goya Black. This turned into a Mexican style lasagna that I would give 5 of 5 stars and have every intention of making again. Fantastic!

    The day I planned to make this I didn't have enough time in the morning to prepare it for the crock pot so I decided make it in the oven. And when I browned the meat I decided to just add all the ingredients together (besides tortillas & cheese, I still layered those) and let simmer in pan for about 20 min. I realized I forgot the tomato sauce & decided not to add it. I omitted the olives & only used 1 lb of meat. Also used the green enchilada sauce. I cooked for 40 min at 350 (uncovered for the last 10 min.) It reminded me of one of my fav. recipes: http://www.recipezaar.com/Crock-Pot-Taco-Soup-40022 I really love this new recipe & being able to get the same flavor & use it in a casseroles, chimichangas, over rice...yum yum!! Thank you so much for a wonderful & versatile recipe!! Enjoyed by the whole family!

    This was okay. I felt it was too dry.. I used the Taco Bell Mix clone. It was just too dry.

    Delicious! Great flavor and easy to make. It didn't turn "mushy" loke some crockpot casseroles; the layers held up. It's important to generously spray your crockpot. I used homemade enchilada sauce, so I spread a little extra over the last layer of tortillas (before the cheese). I was out of black olives so I had to leave them out, but I'll add them next time. Thanx for posting!
